Seven people were hurt in a five-vehicle pileup that shut down portions of U.S. 41 on the evening of Jan. 15, according to news reports. Florida authorities believe that an ambulance driver may have been responsible for the car accident that came perilously close to claiming lives. While no charges have been filed at this time, sources have reported that the driver will likely be cited.
Local authorities are still in the process of investigating whether alcohol and/or unsafe speed played a role in a horrific crash on U.S. 90 on New Year's Day. The brutal car accident claimed the lives of three people, including two teenagers, and sent a half dozen more (including five children) to local Florida hospitals. So far, no criminal charges have been filed in connection with this tragic case.
